Columnar Shrub That Provides Texture but Saves Space Fine Line Buckthorn is a deciduous shrub. Use one as a foundation planting, or several as a backdrop for your perennial bed. It also makes an excellent privacy screen. If you need a versatile shrub and have limited space requirements, then Fine Line Buckthorn is for you. This Proven Winner’s selection features fern-like foliage for a wispy appearance that will add texture to your landscape. It’s narrow, columnar growth makes it a valuable addition to any area where you’d like a vertical accent in a small area. Fine Line Buckthorn will grow 5-7 feet tall, but only 2 feet wide. It doesn’t self-seed, so isn’t weedy and also isn’t invasive (as some similar varieties are). The foliage turns yellow for fall, so some autumn interest is an added bonus. A truly versatile, deciduous shrub, Fine Line Buckthorn will easily find a home in one or more spots in your landscape this year. * Tight, columnar habit * Adaptable to a variety of soils * Good container plant * Drought tolerant (once established) * Wildlife interest * Urban tolerant * Non invasive * Proven Winner selection * Deer resistant.
